Nissan Gripz Is Wildest Plug-In Yet
It's probably one of the wilder flights of designer fancy for an electric vehicle. It carries the stance of an SUV/Crossover, but with shades of a Nissan 370Z. The 2+2 seater is powered the same battery and motor found in the LEAF, but Nissan apparently added a small range-extender engine; how large, they aren't saying. That's an important omission. The BMW i3 REx has a small, two-cylinder gasoline motorcycle engine that roughly doubles its range to around 200 miles. The Chevy Volt's 4-cylinder engine can keep the car rolling for move than 300 additional miles.
The Gripz' e-drive is designed for quiet, pollution-free urban travel, while its 4-wheel drive gives the Gripz some off-road possibilitie. Its controllable rear-wheel drive let's the driver drift to his or her heart's content.
As with all concept cars, pricing and availability are almost never discussed. It's just a way for Nissan to make a statement about its capabilities and possible future intentions.
